It rained today, all day, while you stood outside
waiting for me to ask you to come in.
I would have asked you kindly to get yourself indoors,
dry off without wetting the carpet and get into something warmer.
I would have, had I not heard you whispering to the cat,
about the time we tried to forget
It rained today, all day, while I waited to feel more
about you, to feel like I should bend over backwards
to let you feel better about yourself,
I sent the cat out to ask you to come in
but all I heard was your voice,
the rain and I couldn't.
